here. hopefully, that list is not too long. go ahead. introduce yourself. >> i am from helena, montana. i appreciate you coming here. mr. president, i make a living selling individual health- insurance. obviously, i have paid very close attention to this insurance debate. as you know, the health insurance companies are in favor of health-care reform and have a number of very good proposals before congress to work with government to provide insurance for the uninsured and cover individuals with pre-existing conditions. why is it that you have changed your strategy from talking about health care reform to health insurance reform and decided to vilify the insurance companies? >> that is a fair question. first of all, you are absolutely right that the insurance companies in some cases have been constructive. i will give you a particular example. aetna has been working with us. that is absolutely true. there are other companies who have done the same. i want to be honest with you. i max will testify that in some cases, what we have seen is also funding in opposition by some other insurance

coverage because of preexisting conditions. yesterday i was in montana talking about people who had their insurance policies suddenly revoked even though they were paying their premiums, just because they got sick. today we're talking about people like nathan and his family who have insurance, but are still stuck with huge bills because they hit a cap on their benefits or are charged exorbitant out of pocket fees. when you hear about these experiences, when you think about the millions of people denied coverage because of preexisting conditions and the thousands who have had their policies canceled because of an illness, countless people like nathan, i want you to remember one thing, there but for the grace of god go i.
